The missus and I went to see “Doubt” last weekend after it did so well at the Oscars.
Sitting through the movie, I was positive that Philip Seymour Hoffman’s character was innocent … until the very last scene of the movie. Talking to Lisa afterwards, I found out that she had the complete opposite experience – thinking he was guilty until the last scene, when suddenly she felt as if he had been wrongly accused.
We talked about the movie for several days, arguing our points and discussing key scenes in support of each argument. We still haven’t figured it out.
Now that’s great writing.
